After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues and you feel alone. That’s the reason for Grief Share. Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. They understand how you feel because they’ve been in the same place. The Grief Share individuals will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future. Grief Share is a support group that meets weekly, all meetings will be in St. Mary’s Nativity Church Office from July 2 - October 2. The first session is on July 10 beginning at 1:30 p.m. in the church office. The program is nondenominational and features biblical concepts for healing from our grief. For more information, please contact St. Mary’s Nativity Church Office at 985-537-3204, Marty Cortez at 985-227-0873 or Arvella Dupre at 985-414-4126.
Please pray this prayer daily for St. Mary's Nativity for protection in all situations.
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
(Pope Francis October 13, 2013)
O Mother of Mercy, Queen of Heaven and earth, Refuge of Sinners, we consecrate ourselves to your Immaculate Heart this day.
We give to you our hearts and souls, our families and all that we have, knowing that you will always lead us closer to Jesus. We renew today the promises of our Baptism and rededicate ourselves to following your model of purity. May we live as good Christians, being faithful to God, the Church and the Pope.
We desire to pray the Rosary, confess our sins, partake in the Holy Eucharist, honor your Immaculate Heart on the first Saturday of each month and work for the conversion of souls. Furthermore, we promise O most Blessed Virgin, that we will zealously spread devotion to you, so that through our consecration to your Immaculate Heart and through your own powerful prayers, Christ the King may reign in all hearts forever. Amen.

In an effort to beautify the grounds in front St. Mary's Church Parish Office, we have begun a bricked area which can be used as a prayer place. Remember your loved ones in a special way by purchasing a memorial brick(s) to complete this area. By purchasing a brick you are not only creating an area for prayer and remembering your loved ones but also helping St. Mary to reduce the financial debt. You can purchase your memorial brick through the Online Giving tab or call the Church Parish Office for more information.
